How to translate fears of the unknown into a future that’s worth living in

In our rapidly changing world, new technologies emerge faster than humans can adapt to them. Trying to keep up with the latest developments, we download, install and update continuously.

Not knowing about the complex processes, we develop fears of the unknown: Can these services be trusted? Is it secure? Are intelligent robots taking over our jobs?

A human-centered approach combined with tools to address ethical questions helps when creating AI services. Understanding and addressing ethical issues proactively can happen on three different levels: Individual, Company, Community/Governmental.

This talk introduces tools and guiding questions which help us to create a future people are not afraid of but looking forward to.
